The survival rate of patients with congenital heart disease (CHD) has dramatically improved over the last 2 decades because of technological and surgical advances in diagnosis and treatment, respectively. The vast majority of CHD patients are, in fact, amenable to treatment by either device closure or surgery. Considering the wide spectrum of surgical procedures and complex native and derived anatomy, continuous and detailed follow-up is of paramount importance. Cardiac magnetic resonance and cardiac computed tomography angiography are the cornerstones of diagnosis and follow-up of CHD, allowing for comprehensive noninvasive assessment of the heart, coronary tree, and intrathoracic great vessels, along with both morphological and functional evaluation...

OBJECTIVE: Vascular closure devices have been used to achieve hemostasis of percutaneous access sites following endovascular procedures, with reported decreased time for arterial control as well as decreased time to ambulation. We sought to determine rates and risk factors of postoperative bleeding complications and failures using these devices from a single institution experienced in the use of vascular closure devices. METHODS: All patients undergoing arterial endovascular procedures with percutaneous access between March 2010 and October 2015 at a single institution were identified and analyzed (n=894)...

BACKGROUND: Various approaches such as antegrade trans-septal, retrograde transfemoral and transapical techniques have been used to close mitral paravalvular leak (PVL) in patients with an aortic prosthesis. During the implementation of these techniques, an arteriovenous guidewire loop is often created for device delivery. However, passing through a mechanical aortic valve may cause hemodynamic compromise and prolong the procedure. To date, no studies have evaluated antegrade mitral PVL closure without the use of an arteriovenous wire loop in patients with a mechanical aortic prosthesis...

BACKGROUND: This study sought to evaluate the feasibility, safety, and efficacy of perventricular device closure of a doubly committed sub-arterial ventricular septal defect (dcVSD) through a left infra-axillary approach. METHOD: Forty-five patients, with a dcVSD of less than 8 mm in diameter, were enrolled in this study. The pericardium was exposed and opened through a left infra-axillary mini-incision. Two parallel purse-string sutures were placed on the right ventricle outflow tract and under transesophageal echocardiography guidance, a delivery sheath loaded with the device was inserted into the right ventricle and advanced through the defect into the left ventricle...

OBJECTIVES: Femoral cutdown is standard in most centres if groin cannulation is used for cardiopulmonary bypass in minimally invasive cardiac surgery (MICS). Arterial closure devices (ACDs) allow placement of larger cannulas percutaneously, but its benefit in MICS is unclear. We assessed our results with percutaneous groin cannulation using ACDs in comparison with conventional surgical access in patients undergoing MICS. METHODS: We reviewed 445 consecutive patients having undergone MICS between October 2010 and March 2015...

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) exacerbating vascular disease poses a major challenge to nephrology. Surgically placed vascular fistulas, as an aid to hemodialysis prior to kidney transplant, have extended many lives, while post-surgical restenosis closure of the fistula by smooth muscle cells affects many lives. When post-surgical restenosis is developed, palliative measures are almost always surgical: there are no effective drug treatments. In this study, we offer a testable hypothesis that effects of CKD on widely distributed vascular diseases and the phenomenon of fistula restenosis are both driven by the pathologic creation of non-dividing smooth muscle cells via asymmetric division of exponentially increasing metakaryotic stem cells...

The sophistication, complexity and intelligence of biological systems is a continuous source of inspiration for mankind. Mimicking the natural intelligence to devise tiny systems that are capable of self-regulated, autonomous action to, for example, distinguish different targets, remains among the grand challenges in biomimetic micro-robotics. Herein, we demonstrate an autonomous soft device, a light-driven flytrap, that uses optical feedback to trigger photomechanical actuation. The design is based on light-responsive liquid-crystal elastomer, fabricated onto the tip of an optical fibre, which acts as a power source and serves as a contactless probe that senses the environment...

We describe the use of percutaneously inserted, transcatheter endovascular graft prostheses to exclude large Mustard baffle leaks in a high-surgical-risk patient. We used 3-dimensional-printed models to determine feasibility and to plan the procedure. Telescoping thoracic and abdominal graft extensions were placed in the inferior and superior limbs of the systemic venous pathways. An atrial septal defect occluder device was also used to close a separate leak not covered by the endovascular graft prostheses...

A 64-year-old man experienced a driveline infection that was treated with serial debridements and antibiotics. When the wound clinically appeared ready for closure, a handheld fluorescence imaging device still revealed a margin of red fluorescence around the wound edges consistent with a subclinical infection. Therefore, a wider margin was made and additional specimens for wound culture were taken, which demonstrated a vancomycin-resistant enterococcal infection. The autofluorescence signals of common bacteria can be detected with a fluorescence camera in subclinical wound infections without clinical signs...

Catheter closure of membranous ventricular septal defects is generally not considered feasible in small infants. We report the successful closure of a membranous ventricular septal defect in a 1.8-kg infant with bilateral femoral artery occlusion using Amplatzer Duct Occluder II additional size device. The ventricular septal defect was crossed from the right ventricle, and the device was deployed using transthoracic echocardiographic guidance.

Type II Abernethy malformations, characterized by side-to-side portosystemic shunting with preserved intrahepatic portal venous system, have been treated with shunt closure surgically and endovascularly. Three-dimensional printing has been used to develop highly accurate patient-specific representations for surgical and endovascular planning and intervention. This innovation describes three-dimensional printing to successfully close a flush-oriented type II Abernethy malformation, with discrepant dimensions on computed tomography, conventional venography, and intravascular ultrasound, using a 12-mm AMPLATZER atrial septal occluder device...

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is leading cardiac arrhythmia with important clinical implications. Its diagnosis is usually made on the basis on 12-lead ECG or 24-hour Holter monitoring. More and more clinical evidence supports diagnostic use of cardiac event recorders and cardiovascular implantable electronic devices (CIED). Treatment options in patients with atrial fibrillation are extensive and are based on chosen rhythm and/or rate control strategy. The use and selected contraindications to AF related pharmacotherapy, including anticoagulants are shown...
